How to send a parcel to Algeria? Required Documents
When preparing your shipment from Switzerland to Algeria, please attach the proforma invoice generated by Expedismart.ch. When shipping a new product that you have just bought, the proforma invoice is not the receipt of purchase that you receive in the shop. The proforma invoice is used, to inform customs of the exact contents of your package, its value, and the country of origin. If the goods have been purchased by the consignee or are to be resold after arrival in the country, the shipment must be accompanied by a commercial invoice, which can also be created on Expedismart.ch. For valuable goods, it is advisable to take out insurance. Our insurance partner is AXA Winterthur, which charges 1% of the value of the goods for insurance.
Make sure you keep a copy of the proforma or commercial invoice!
